Are the insurance claim jobs less sought after?

Posted by Andri Ong, on
Hi. I posted a fairly detailed (inc. pictures) roof repair job to the site looking for an estimate for insurance proposes and had zero interest. Are the insurance claim jobs less sought after? If so, what is the reason? are insurers difficult to deal with?

Hi there Personally myself speaking about my company I'm very cautious to take on any insurance work as there is always guaranteed complications from them. Eg, last job I did for a client when it came to payment it took them 12 weeks to pay up and they did not pay VAT either so I lost out of about £800 due to this. So I'd imagine a lot of tradesman have had issues with insurance companies these days. I hope this helps you.
